This is my first Volvo. I really liked the look of them when they came out, and I was shopping for a new car after owning my Nissan Murano for 3 years. That one was, in my opinion, a very pretty car, but totally different - all long and curvy. And of course, a CVT, so not any sort of driving vehicle, just a commuter, and not bad touring vehicle. Prior to that I had a Highlander Hybrid Limited -again, not fun to drive at all, but safe and loaded with features.
So, after test driving the XC40,and feeling the handling and different driving modes, I knew it was what I wanted. I was really lucky to snag one I think. There are hardly any on the roads around here, so I get a lot of looks from people.
